Michael Mann's neon-drenched neo-noir thriller, his debut film, stylishly set the template for hard-boiled drama in the 1980s. James Caan gives one of his greatest performances as a career jewel thief torn between criminal enterprise and settling down for a normal life with the woman he loves. With Tuesday Weld, Willie Nelson, Robert Prosky, Jim Belushi and Dennis Farina; the moody soundtrack is by Tangerine Dream. DIR/SCR Michael Mann, from "The Home Invaders: Confessions of a Cat Burglar" by Frank Hohimer; PROD Jerry Bruckheimer, Ronnie Caan. U.S., 1981, color, 123 min. RATED R
